Well The Iran Nuclear Deal Didn’t Last Long

Earlier today I posted a somewhat sceptical blog on the alleged deal struck between western foreign ministers and the Iranian government that is being hailed as a triumph for western diplomacy and the Obama administration’s foreign policy of Kumbayaism.

Basically Obama and Cameron sent John Kerry and William Hague over there to say, “Stop enriching uranium and you can come on over and fuck our bosses up the arse any time.”

This was not a great offer as no matter what western politicians might like to think, Iranians are none too keen on rent boys (well not openly anyway)

So after all the ballyhoo and “peace in our time” bollocks on television and radio and in this mornings papers we hear Mohammad Javad Zarif the Iranian Foreign Minister had this to say today.

“Western diplomats have said that one the main problems during the negotiations earlier this month was Iran’s insistence that it has the “right” to enrich uranium.

“Not only do we consider that Iran’s right to enrich is non-negotiable, but we see no need for that to be recognized as ‘a right,’ because this right is inalienable and all countries must respect that,” told ISNA news agency. Full story at Activist Post

Meanwhile, even as the six Foreign Ministers were cracking openm the champagne and slapping each other’s monkeys backs, The Jerusalem Post was running this story.

“Fars news agency quotes Tehran’s deputy nuclear chief as saying two nuclear reactors being planned in addition to Bushehr core.

Iran is planning to construct two new nuclear power plants in the near future, the Fars News Agency quoted a senior Iranian nuclear official as saying Saturday.

“The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has put construction of the second and third (nuclear) power stations on its agenda due to the government’s programs and the emphasis laid by the President (Hassan Rouhani),” Fars quoted AEOI Deputy Chief Hossein Khalfi as saying. Iran currently has one such operational nuclear power plant at Bushehr.”

So much for western diplomacy.

    The deal is interim in type and this is a sign of progress in a difficult to negotiate situation. The nuclear industry has undergone changes of personnel and advisors in the last 3 years and the rules are not always adhered to these days.
    There is a safety problem developing with the prospect of 2 more reactors being installed in the relatively small area of the Bushehr complex and concerns have been raised about the effect to the area in the event of nuclear leaks accident and possible terrorist attack or attempted takeover.
    Significant amounts of nuclear radioactive material could be released into the air and the east and the west of the world are mindful of the Chernobyl and Three mile island incidents during the last 30 years.
    The EU and the six nations taking part in the negotiations have to recall the special case that Iran is and that its laws present to the group during discussions and the possible effects that can be applied to some nations in the event of Iran being forced to go the wrong way or without the correct people being made available to the discussions and technical assessments
